Once Upon A Dance

Now the curtains have closed, all the props have been packed away and the costumes are all in closets. All this can only mean one thing: the show this year is over.

However, it may be over but it will always stay here with us!

This years show saw a flight through Neverland all the way to Wonderland whilst visiting the Enchanted Forest and the Circus!

It truly was an amazing show overall with fantastic dancers and teachers.

If you came to watch you will know how truly spectacular it was! However, if you missed out, there’s always next year when we are back at the Mansfield Palace Theatre for another show! We hope to see you then or at classes which have now started back up for the last few weeks of term!

Thank you for an amazing show!
